Head of Year
Location: Leicester, city centre.
A unique opportunity for dedicated and enthusiastic pastoral support worker to join the team at Castle Mead Academy, as part of The Mead Educational Trust.
In August 2019, Castle Mead Academy, a non-selective secondary school, opened its doors and welcomed our first year 7 cohort. Since then, we have never looked back! By 2024, the eight-form entry school will be at capacity with a cohort of 1200 scholars. Building on the success of Rushey Mead Academy, Castle Mead is making available in the heart of Leicester a standard of education matching the very best schools in the country so that every scholar leaves us with high value academic qualifications and wider positive dispositions to enable them to lead fulfilling lives.
The opportunity to work in a growing school, is like no other. When you start a school from scratch like we have, it is a golden opportunity to put in place all of the amazing things you have heard and read about from the best schools in the land – but in one place, here in Leicester! As we now cross into our next chapter, and move in to our new state-of-the-art school building, join us and help to build a genuine legacy of your own, alongside colleagues who are aligned in their values.
We are recruiting a team of like-minded experts to help realise our vision and “Grow a Community of Excellence.” This is a rare opportunity, so as we challenge convention, lead without preconception and are unapologetically ambitious on behalf of our scholars.
We are recruiting our next Head of Year. This is an opportunity for an experienced pastoral support worker who is:
• wanting to lead a year group and uphold the ethos, expectations and standards of the academy;
• is seeking to lead on safeguarding and behaviour management as part of our pastoral team;
• willing to learn from the expertise of our Lead Behaviour and Safeguarding Officer;
• wanting to grow as a leader in a growing school.
• wants to join us as we move in to a new £30m building, on the picturesque riverside, for August 2021!
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with the Principal and other Senior Leaders to develop provision and practice year by year as our school grows.
Please submit your application by 10th March 2021. For further information, a confidential discussion, to book a visit to Castle Mead Academy or any technical queries please contact Tom Hague, Principal, by email or telephone.
